The type of sponge filter we are both getting has no spot for the airstone so no need on that..Instead I got an air flow valve.

You don't need an air stone for sponge filters. Just the sponge filter, air pump, and airline tubing. The air flow valve needs the tubing to control the air if the pump is too strong.

I don't think my pump is too strong but still like the option of controlling the flow in case my betta flips out. I got a gang valve to control it.

That's the point of an air flow valve, to control the flow of the air. Lol

I've always used nothing but sponge filters, love them. I have used just about every brand out there, they all do the job really well
